"So certainly as the leader of a country you would have to hold him responsible, yes", Trump told CBS News in an interview. He also asserted that no president has been tougher on Russian Federation than him.
BOB MENENDEZ: Pro-Kremlin media at this moment are putting out more information supposedly about agreements that were arrived by President Trump with President Putin than anything that I know as the senior-most Democrat on this committee, that as far as I know that any member of the committee knows and that the American people know. McFaul was United States ambassador to Russian Federation when President Barack Obama signed the Magnitsky Act into law, imposing harsh sanctions that Browder and McFaul supported. The flap that began Monday in Europe continued Wednesday in the nation's capital when ABC News reporter Cecilia Vega asked Trump if he believed Russian Federation is "still targeting the U.S". "And they're saying that's on the table - that's what Sarah Sanders said". He also said he has faith in USA intelligence agencies. But on one cornerstone issue, a resistance to US intervention overseas, they are simpatico. He denied Russia's accusations and expressed deep concern that the White House failed to defend him.
"The briefing of the so-called Russian meddling in our elections had varying degrees of confidence level expressed by the intelligence community at various points", Massie said, alleging that evidence for Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is not as clear as the media may suggest. Trump was facing off against Hillary Clinton in the upcoming U.S. election, and it really, really, really looked like Clinton was going to win.
At the news conference with Putin, he was asked if he would denounce what happened in 2016 and warn Putin never to do it again, and he did not directly answer. "We're not going to have it, and that's the way it's going to be". "But he does believe that they would target certainly US elections again".
A Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after his news conference with Mr Putin found that 55 per cent of registered United States voters disapproved of his handling of relations with Russian Federation, while 37 per cent approved.
Putin and Trump first held talks on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, on July 7, 2017. "Big results will come!"
"To me, it's a threat that we need to take extremely seriously", said Wray who was picked by Trump himself after he fired the then FBI Director James Comey past year. But a group revolt - which many Trump critics have yearned for - could also come across to viewers as pompous and self-serving. There is no rush, the sanctions remain!
In his morning tweets, Trump said he elicited a promise from Putin during their meeting to help negotiations with North Korea, but did not say how.
Then, on Wednesday, he was asked during a Cabinet meeting if Russian Federation was still targeting the USA, and he answered "no" without elaborating.
Speaking in Britain last week, Trump declined to take a question from Jim Acosta of CNN, declaring his employer "fake news" and turning to John Roberts of Fox News, adding, "Let's go to a real network". "It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome!" the president wrote.
And Rep. Jan Shakowsky, D-Ill., was the only one of 10 Democrats at a Tuesday news conference on Trump's Helsinki summit to mention the word "treason".
"In a 51-49 Senate, all we need is one person who wants to be on the right side of history". "The Helsinki meeting was an opportunity to see where the relationship could go in the future". "It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome!" "The president and his administration are working very hard to make sure that".
"We're doing very well, probably as well as anybody has ever done with Russian Federation".
It also named other former USA officials, including someone it described as a former intelligence officer, Russia's state-operated RIA news agency reported.
"I said the word "would" instead of 'wouldn't, '" Mr Trump told reporters at the White House, more than 24 hours after his appearance with Mr Putin.
Asked by a journalist before a morning Cabinet meeting whether Russian Federation was still targeting the United States, Trump looked at the reporter, shook his head and said, "No".
But Trump was hesitant to say whether he thinks Putin is lying about Russia's actions.
"The sentence should have been: "I don't see any reason why I wouldn't" or 'why it wouldn't be Russian Federation", he told reporters at the White House. Trump raged about him on Twitter, and the lawmaker ultimately lost his Republican primary last month to a Trump loyalist.
